Twelfth Night: Reflections on Epiphany 2016

Note: the above photo is “Bethlehem’s Orb” by Sheila Hunter and is used by permission.

Tonight is Twelfth Night, the eve of Epiphany when we remember how magi from Persia followed to Jesus’ birthing place an unusual God-flung orb of light that appeared in the heavens. The word “epiphany” means “manifestation” or “a striking appearance.”

(The remainder of this post, including an Epiphany poem, is published on the Patheos Unfundamentalist Christian site linked below.)
